LANGUAGE AND MIGRATION
2012/2013, Semester 2
Non-Faculty-Based Departments (Ctr For English Language Communication)
Modular Credits: 4
This course examines the relationship between language and migration. What does it mean to live a life in a new language? What are the different kinds of migration and how well do the languages of different migrants travel? Why are languages not equally mobile? In small, interactive classes, students will explore these questions through the lenses of a wide range of texts from autobiographies to movies to scholarly articles. Students will be encouraged to develop their own informed views regarding the issues and they will be guided in making the rhetorical decisions that best argue their view in writing.
Students must have passed/been exempted from the NUS Qualifying English Test (QET) or have passed the CELC English for Academic Purposes modules.
Students who have already read a WP2201 or IEM module.
